THE POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

THE POST-OFFICE. In. EOITOn-You will do a great benefit to the settlers of this quarter, by insetting in your inde petdent journal an account of the way in which the Post Office affairs are carried on here. For the last three or four months we have had no regular post; and I have not received a paper from your oflice since the 24th of March. The post arrives at the township of Scone three times a week; and at the township of Mlurrutundi only once a week; and that so irregular, that we are often a fortnight before it arrives; and even then, in consequence of the Post Master's having to go to Sydney on his own business, the bug must remain unopened until such time as lie returns. Now, Mr. Editor, I beg you will publish the above, in hopes the Post .1taster General may make some arrangementsto have this great evil reme died as quickly as possible, and you will oblige Your obedient setvant, A SUBSCRIBER. Page's River, 11th April, 1840 P. S.-We have had some very refreshing showers, and ...

THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. "E' gran disgrazia l'aver connessione conun malvagio." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. " E' gran disgrazia laver coneessione con us malvagio." VWe will not, of cour ', be expected to enter into a personal discussion with our late police reporter, Robert lI~bble, who, having been discharged from our office for his incorrigible habits, has been allowed to slander us by name in the columns of the Sydney Gazette under the name of Paul Pry, junior; and our readers may be assured we should have allowed the said Robert to wear his mask, had he-confining his powers of delineation to his usual haunts, the tap, the watch-house, and the police-ollice-refrained or been restrained by hi, employer from insulting the religious feelings bf a vast portion of the people. But we will not allow our contemporary of the Gazette to publish this man's abuse of the Catholic public without comment, knowing as we do that the writer would to-morrow, as he has done before, write an attack upon the "Anglican Church," if it were to gain him a few shillings. We felt it to be our ...

EDInOt,-1 will, with your permission, con tinue my subject on emigration; first apologising for the time that has intervened between my first and present letter. But I have been ill. lily first letter was addressed to young men pos. sessing about £200 property; it was equally ap. plicable to others not having that fortune. In continuation.-On reading my first letter, I fancy I hear you say, " What shall I do when I get to Sydney ?" My answer is, your circum stances or your inclinations urging you to better your condition in a foreign land, what will you do in New Zealand, in South Australia, in Canada 1 Ninety-nine out of a hundred who emigrate reach their destination ignorant of every interest connected with their future pursuit : they only throw for a gamestei'scchance.

HOW TO PURIFY THE AUSTRALIAN BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

HOW TO PURIFY THE AUSTRALIAN BENCH. IN reference to a paragraph that appeared in the Chronicle of the 10th current, we are now enabled to state, for the information of the public, who have lately complained of the inadequate strength of the police force, that many of the constables at present paid by the public are employed in the private service of the different police magistrates. We content ourselves to-day with furnishing one case, as a specimen; and our readers may believe that we are guided solely by a sense of our public duty, after the most careful search into the truth of the facts we state. A man named Broderick, sworn to perform the duty of a constable, and re- ceiving from the public funds 2s. 9d. a day, has been employed for the last two years, or there- abouts, solely, as the domestic servant of the police magistrate of the Paterson, with the exception of a few months, during which time his place as a domestic servant was supplied by another constable, still in the pol...

Original Poetry. TO AN ENGLISH HAWTHORN, Growing beside Sir John Jamison's garden fence, at Regentville. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

Original Poetry TO AN ENGLISH HAWTHORN, Growing beside Sir John Jamison's garden fence, at Regenteille. Methought Australia had no gentle thing To woo my wilding heart from weariness, Since even the holy sun, illumining This beautiful Siberia' with excess Of light and glory, seem'd compassionless Nlothought all things which were endear'd to me, All sanctified by friendship's, love's, caress, Were separated by that cruel sea, Till my eyes rested here, sweet English thorn, on thee. Thou strik'st my soul, and glowing thoughts rush Of poet's childhood, spent beneath thy shade, And love's first dream, before life's treacherous cup Was drain'd unto the bitter-blushing maid And passionate youth heart-binding vows have made, 'Neath thy white beauty, in some English vale I But vanish, ere my greeting I have paid, All fancy's pictures; and with grief I hail Thy presence, for thou seem'st to bring a mournful tale. 'Tis strange my breast this gladness did assume; For, when I gaze again, sweet t...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

T01ettetic Testelligence. -0 EASTER -The soletnities of Easter and Holy Week, including the Mlissa priusanetifi. calm and the office of Tenebrm, have this season been celebrated at St. Mlary's with all the solemnity of the Latin rite; and, considering the unfinished state of the edifice, and the little acquaintance some of our divines have with the more sublime parts of the ceremonial, it was truly gratifying to witness these rites performed for the first time with so much effect. Let these things be repeated. Religion must find its way to the soul by means of the senses. 'Those who think will rejoice to see the people attracted to the spot where they will learn their duties, and fools who who come to gaze and laugh may remain to pray. SYDNEY PROTESTANT MAGAZINE - We have received the first number of this work, but we have not yet had time to peruse it. It would appear, from the contents, that it is a small gun of the Evangelic calibre; and it is said to be edited by a son of the Co...

THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840

THE POLICE. Mr. Price has again resumed the sanguinary lash. A week's interval seems to have created fresh excite ment. We do not wish to adopt the very injudicious comparison made by the Advertiser-the government journal itself-between Sir George Arthur and Sir John Franklin, but we may say that Mr. Price would not, "for his right hand," have ventured his present course in the time of the former. When the unhappy prisoner was lacerated at the triangles, it was for thieving, not for such offences as giving a man in the stocks a pipe of tobacco, or as on the present occasion for what is called "gross misconduct in using im proper language." Such an apparent pre-disposition for the puntshmentof personal torture, surely exhibits but slender qualifications for the police magistracy, where such ultra Turkey and Persian power is pos sessed. Neither do we consider that Mr. Price, while he wields that enormous power, being the Governor's near relation, should bring before his colleague his ...

CLERICAL RAPACITY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840

CLERICAL RAPACITY. The first sale of crown lands that has taken place in Launceston, was held at the Court House on Wednesday last; the lots were generally the selec tion of individuals-were put up at the upset price, according to the existing land regulations, and for the most part realised very high prices. This was the first opportunity we have had of witnessing a government land sale, and certainly enjoy anything but a favourable opinion of the plan, as advantageous to the applicant for the land, or the country. The land jobber has afforded him a fine opportunity to make money at the expence of the industrious settler, ard we fear that the sale of Wednesday last proved a good harvest to more than one person of that character. A scene came off at the sale held in the Court House, which beggars all description, and required to be witnessed to be appreciated. It was circulated generally over the town on the morning of the sale, that the Rev. Dr. Browne had employed a man named' Raw...

The Chronicle. FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840

FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1840. IN our supplement of this day will be found several important extracts front late European journals. We would in par ticular call attention to the splendid letter of Mr. O'Connell on the treason of Bradshaw and the Tory parsons. We subjoin a few moro gleanings from our latest papers. A series of very fair and intelligent letters has appeared in the Journal des D6bats on the subject of New Zealand, proving how little the occupation of that country is owing to any ambition of the English Government, being, on the con trary, but a necessary result of the ad. venturous spirit of the British, impelled by their position and wants in these seas. The following is an extract: "Itis a great and splendid conquest which En. gland has here silently made. If France have the courage for such far colenisation-if she needs it-if she has that superabundance ofmen and capital worth sending both to the Pacific and Austral seas, there is room enough there beneath the sun.

PORT LINCOLN. Public dinner to commemorate the anniversary of the taking of the first special survey at Port Lincoln. A party of twenty gentlemen (including the captain, mate, and surgeon of the Reunion-a French whaler, at present in our port,) sat down to a sumptuous dinner, on the 27th of February, The dinner consisted principally of kangaroo, the soup from the tail of which would have been relished by Sir William Curtis, and done credit to a city feast on the 9th November; cereopsis, ducks, pigeon pies, with a variety of fish, were all the native pro. ductions of the ucigbousbond, and cooked by the attendants of Mr. Innes, of the.Port Lincoln hotel, in such a manner as to give the most perfect satis faction, The spirits were strong and potent; the wines good and various; the company friendly, sociable and harmonious, and the evening spent sn unanimous conviviality; the company parted at the time such company ought to part, but not much sooner, and it may perhaps be useless to say...
